Install lowering springs on 2015 Macan S

Recommended Posts

I just got my 2015 Macan S. It drives very well for an SUV. However, I think the suspension can use some lowering to improve the handling.

H&R already came out lowering springs for the new Macan at 1.5" lower in front/rear. I bought the springs from tirerack and am looking for info on the installation. I have the steel spring w/ PASM suspension on my Macan.

Has anyone done this? Any specific info/tips for the installation? I will definitelt go to a shop to do it.

Thanks for the help!

Hi jzwu....  I have no personal experience with lowering a steel springed Macan but can offer a couple general observations. All lowering spring kits will change the spring rate somewhat inorder to prevent bottoming out.  Given that, the PASM has been calibrated to the original spring rates.  So, there may or may not be some different spring-damper interactions with different PASM settings.  I've seen lowered Macans on the 'net and they do look good!

Thanks Craig.

Yes, I am on the MacanForum.com all the time. There are a few owners who have installed the H&R lowering springs (I think in Canada). The car does look very good after lowering as the stock suspension has huge 4-5" wheel gaps.

GMP performance did that too and has before & after pics on their web site. The issue is Macan is so new that very few places have done the work. I called some local reputable Porsche shops but none has done it.

It seems that with the lowering springs the PASM settings are firmer, Comfort now feels like stock Sport, per the owners. This is fine with me since I leave the PASM mode in Sport most of the time. I have the standard 19" wheels with summer tires.

We installed them on our Turbo with 21-inch wheels and are quite pleased with the aesthetics and the ride quality.  Really makes the car sportier.
